Slow Start and Good Intensions

February is nearly over. Thank goodness. But what I intended to be a one month off in December has snowballed into three. Guess I needed it. Creating while being a mother is hilarious. Creating while your kids’ schedules constantly change because of a pandemic and weather is annoying AF. Creating while also being autistic and… Continue reading Slow Start and Good Intensions

Christmas Stockings; knitting with traditional yarn and colors

I promised myself at the beginning of 2019, that I'd not pick up or start any new projects because I had plenty to finish. It was going to be the year of finishing all the projects. And books. But that's a different subject. But I wandered into an old local knitting store one day Central… Continue reading Christmas Stockings; knitting with traditional yarn and colors

Now I spy tiny lost feathers poking up from leaves, a mushroom about to burst through, and the elusive Lobaria lichens… Continue reading Just a Slice; a walk around Gregan’s

Details; a stay at Gregan’s Castle Hotel

This post will not do this lovely stay justice. At all. But I just wanted to share a teeny slice of some of my favorite details of a place I’ve been visiting for 8 years for teas and dinners, but this time I stayed for a few peaceful nights as well. For me, it was… Continue reading Details; a stay at Gregan’s Castle Hotel

Up the Burren; youhereforthewalkareya?

In other words, opposed to one word; “you’re here for the walk, are ya?” Say it really fast. This is how I was greeted by our guide, Shane. My ear was still adjusting to the Clare accent apparently. I loved, loved, LOVED this walk!!!! With each experience in the Burren over the last 20 odd… Continue reading Up the Burren; youhereforthewalkareya?
